Freckles can occur naturally or develop as a result of sun exposure. They aren’t harmful to the skin, but some people prefer to lighten or remove them for a more even complexion.
There are several ways to overcome your freckles. We have listed several methods you can use.
1. Natural Lightening
Lemon juice, a natural bleaching agent, can be used to make freckles look lighter and disappear. You can also apply a milk-based mask to your face and let it soak into your skin. The lactic acid in milk peels away the top layer of skin, making freckles lighter in appearance. And another way is making a fruit peel. Mixing fruits together and letting them dry on your skin is a natural way to peel away the top layer of skin, lightening the appearance of your freckles.
2. Freckle Removal Treatments
There are various treatments that can help lighten and remove those unwanted freckles. Skin lightening crèmes may be effective for resolving natural and sun-related freckles. Microdermabrasion uses a stream of tiny particles to remove the outer layer of skin, lightening natural freckles or those caused by moderate sun damage. Chemical peels is also an effective treatment that reduces the appearance of freckles by peeling away the top layer of skin. Lasers can also be used to burn the blood vessels just underneath the freckles, reducing their appearance or removing them entirely.
3. Lifestyle Changes
Making some lifestyle changes can be a great follow up to the methods you’ve taken for lessening your freckles. While there are people born with freckles, others develop them over time as a result of sun exposure. So use sunscreen, a lot of it. Make sure you cover your face every couple of hours while you’re out in the sun, and more often if you’re going swimming. Wear a hat and other protective clothing as well.
What you eat also affects your skin. Vitamin C helps to lighten freckles, so make sure you’re getting plenty of it in your daily diet. Citrus fruits, kiwis, spinach, and other leafy greens are all excellent sources of vitamin C.
4. Makeup Solutions
Mineral makeup can help conceal and blend freckles with your natural skin tone. Consult with professional to determine which foundation color works best for your particular complexion.
